Clean Air Ambassador: Margaret Kitchell

I love the beauty of this part of the world, and want to preserve it, as well as the health of the people who live here.

I love the beauty of this part of the world, and want to preserve it, as well as the health of the people who live here. I have a son who had asthma attacks when he was young. I have also had many patients with asthma, cardiovascular disease and diabetes, and know that air pollution affects their health.

While we think of the Pacific Northwest as having a beautiful environment, it is cause for dismay that King County received an "F" rating for ozone in the State of the Air rankings and a "C" in particulates.

Transportation, including autos, trucks and airplanes, accounts for a large share of air pollution in the Northwest. I have been concerned about transportation emissions for many years, and in particular global warming gases. We have already had intense weather and storms that are consistent with climate change. I want our leaders in Washington, D.C. to ensure that strong health standards are kept and enforced.
